TCP Port 8069 is already in use

I'm trying to load odoo V9.0 (from github using homebrew) onto my MacBook Pro running Sierra 10.12.1 using guidance from a Youtube video https://youtu.be/RRmmpWt5Nvg

When I install the program it seems to install then I get the message:

File "/usr/local/Cellar/python/2.7.12_2/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/socket.py", line 228, in meth return getattr(self._sock,name)(*args)

error: [Errno 48] Address already in use

When I open Safari and type in I get a message saying:

"Safari can't open page because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection."

Does anyone have a fix?

I followed yours and the github instructions to change the openerp-server.conf file but it made no difference.

I should point out this is the third time I've tried to install using the procedure outlined in the video.

Should I uninstall / delete everything and start again with a clean slate?

If so, what's the best way to go about that?

The video seems straightforward to me, so there is a chance, that you already have an Odoo instance running while trying to install a new one. I would restart again with a clean install.

Odoo doesn't appear in my Applications folder or in the applications directory in Mackeeper.

What would be the best way to remove all instances of the program so I can do a clean install?

You should check your virtual environment "odoo-env", if you followed the video. But I'm not firm with Odoo on Macs.

Check what is already using port 8069, if it is legit, change the Odoo port to something else in the openerp-server.conf file (usually located at /etc/odoo directory) by changing the xmlrpc_port parameter. See here for details: https://github.com/odoo/odoo/issues/8322
